Brand Le Labo
Do you remember the old Marlboro ads? A man and his horse in front of the fire on a great plain under tall, blue evening skies - A defining image of the spirit of the American West with all it implied about masculinity and personal freedom. This man, firelight in his face, leaning on the worn leather saddle, alone with the desert wind, an icon so powerful that every man wanted to be him and every woman wanted to have him...
From this memory is born SANTAL 33: the ambition to create an olfactive form inspired by the great American myth still a source of fantasy for the rest of the world...
A perfume that touches the sensual universality of this icon... that would intoxicate a man as much as a woman... that introduces our use of cardamom, iris, violet, ambrox which crackle in the formula and bring to this smoking wood alloy (Australian sandalwood, papyrus, cedarwood) some spicy, leathery, musky notes, and gives this perfume its unisex signature and addictive comfort.
Thank god for scent split because this is very much a try before you buy. The sandalwood and papyrus scent is interesting and different, but to me it just smelled like a cemetery. Not pleasant in the slightest.
very strong sandalwood(i think), long lasting.
My favorite of a recent order of samples. Good sillage and longevity
Smells just like like le labo made it for you and sent it to you the same week. Definitely worth it for the price 15ml from le labo for 85$ or 10ml for 35$ what would you pick?
I’m new to decant/sample sites so it was very exciting to stumble upon Scent Split online. The items arrived in a timely manner and I just love the monochromatic packaging. All of the vials were tightly sealed, I did not have any issues with leaking. Niche fragrances are an obsession of mine and I’ll be ordering again soon!
